Do Tell: Nibble From the Grill?

I want to include my pooch in our fireworks-less Fourth of July plans, but North and yums mix all too well! He's very well-behaved outdoors with many things to sniff (and has a lovely red-and-white striped harness), but I'm worried to have him so close to a hot grill. . . . and all that temptation. With pets near a BBQ tomorrow, or any day for that matter, give them plenty of safe space away from the savory smells, or keep them indoors or leashed while burgers are flippin'. If you must pamper a pooch with people food, save a bit of unmarinated, boneless chicken breast or other cooked lean, skinless meat as a freshly-grilled snack. Remember, even though bones sound like great dog treats, I don't recommend giving these items from your table to your pups as many can splinter in their throats or cause canines to choke.

Do you let your pets try tomorrow's tasty treats? What do they use those powerful puppy dog eyes to get?

We'll give Bug trimmings. But, he has managed to score with some dropped things - including a jalapeno popper hot off the grill with the toothpick still in it! :faint: Somehow, that didn't bother him at all. Thank goodness!

no dogs here but Bubba gets a sample of any meat if he wants it.

Fuji always gets bits and pieces of everything not from me but from other people around him. He always goes after the little kiddies and give them the puppy dog eyes. lol.

B-Bop LOVES tri-tip so I'll save him a little piece. I'm sure he'll nab up anything that falls!

My mom makes plain burgers for her dogs, which I think is a tad ridiculous. I could see feeding them a little bite or two, but a whole burger is pretty insane. I plan on grilling a small piece of chicken for Scout mostly because it's the first grillout she's been to this year. I also buy her Frosty Paws to eat while we're outside in the sun...she LOVES the Peanut Butter flavor!

My bf always wants to give my dog a taste, and I let him give an unseasoned bite sometimes. If something drops on the ground, my dog will usually nab it, even on his leash.

I give my dogs almost a bite of everything LOL!! Bad I know. I only give them a tiny bite and nothing that is poisonous.
